We stopped here after not being able to get a table at another restaurant in Venice and are very glad we did. There was a 15 minute wait, so we went into the bar for a drink. There were several seats available at the bar so we sat down. We found that we could eat dinner there so we did.... More

Good variety of different beers on tap. When there for a girl happy hour and was fun. Would go again. Didn't eat just had a few beers.

Based on previous reviews and proximity to our hotel, we decided to try this restaurant during our recent visit to Venice. I had their signature "Fish And Chips" meal. The batter coating on the fish was a little heavy and not crispy. The fish seemed to be of average quality but was actually mushy. The "Chips" (IE. Fries) were just... More

Nice place to eat and have a drink. Service friendly and efficient. The food was a bit too heavy for our taste. The meat pies are decent, even though the sauce reminds us of the sauces that are in the bottle and very popular in Britain and Ireland. Also the crust could be lighter. Would probably go back for the... More

Our original reservations were not until 7:30 (best available). We arrived early and got seated before we were able to down a drink. The service was great as was the Salmon, the corned beef and cabbage and the Scrod. My corned beef Ruben sandwich however was soggy and very difficult to eat complicated by stringy corned beef. So unless you... More

I am very sorry to hear about your corned beef Rueben!! If this was on Friday, we actually had just unearthed a problem with our Corned Beef that evening! Part of what you may have taken as disinterest with our manager could have been her working through the problem... It is important to me as an owner hat we not... More

Tucked away in the Publix shopping center at the round-about of Jacaranda and East Venice Ave, Looks like a real English Pub with separate bar and restaurant rooms. Extensive menu. Went there twice. Fish and chips available in several styles - fried iis dynamite with loads of food on platter. Bangers and mask also excellent along with Rueben sandwich. Very... More

We went for the first time for lunch. Nice place, a bit smaller than we thought, but it has quite a bit of outside seating which on a warmer day would be great. The waitress was friendly and efficient. My wife had fish and chips, the batter was light and crunchy, fish cooked perfectly. I had the reuben and it... More
